Quotes on Christ’s Resurrection (6)

After showing how different bodily resurrection was from other first century ideas about life after death, N.T Wright addresses the charge that belief in the resurrection is out-dated and pre-modern:

“(It is) wrong to imply that the choice is between an ancient worldview and a modern (or even a postmodern) one. The ancient worldview of Homer, Plato, Cicero, and the rest had no room for resurrection either. What is at stake is the clash between a worldview that allows for a God of creation and justice and worldviews that don’t.”
